Yesterday Taylor Swift unveiled the title track of her upcoming fourth album Red on Good Morning America, and if you pinned me down, I’d say the pop track is really quite vermillion. Or perhaps tangerine.
What, you don’t attribute a color to every song you hear?
Then you and T-Swift are never ever ever going to be friends — this girl has a color chosen for everything! (To be fair, I do the same thing. I was debating this weekend whether Mumford & Sons’ new album is dark green or rich burgundy.)
According to the chorus of “Red,” here’s how Swift remembers a recent relationship:
Losing him was blue like I’d never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
But loving him was red
Those are the only colors the song — which Swift says is all about “intense emotion” — brings up, which kind of let me down. I feel like if we’re going with a color theme for a whole song, we need more splashes than just red, blue, and dark grey — I mean, is dark grey REALLY a color? How about some yellow and green? Weirdly, I’m being serious — I kept waiting for some other hue to pop up, and it never did. Now I feel totally mauve, you know?
